Elementary Research Online - beyond google

Elementary Research Online - beyond google | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it
Google has become a proprietary eponym in our modern internet age. Much like Xerox means copy, and Kleenex means tissue, Google has become synonymous with research. But how can we help students search in a safe, meaningful & reliable way?

Learnist | Share what you know

Here are some ways that you, as an educator, can put Learni.st to good use:

Aggregating a useful feed.  If there is a website or author that you think regularly puts out good stuff, you can collect and curate that material in one place (like an interactive RSS feed).  Share your experience and hard-won lessons with other educators.   Use a Board to keep you and your fellow teachers abreast of innovations in the field and what others are doing. Putting together multimedia resources.   Want to have a single plac e where you can aggregate videos, articles, factoids, and images on a single subject?  Use a Board to put it all in one place in an easily digestible format.Collect resources for future use.  Sometimes you find something cool that you can’t use right now, but might need in the future.  With Learni.st you can collect those nuggets in one place and use them as and when you need them (and share them with others). Use your Learni.st board to create step-by-step tutorials on how to do just about anything.

The New York Times Compendium

The New York Times Compendium | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Create collections of articles, quotes, images, and videos from The New York Times. Annotate the items you’ve collected to tell a story. Share your collections with the world!

 

It’s like a quasi-Pinterest or Storify, but somehow cooler. It could be useful to teachers at home. Unfortunately, you can only sign-in through Facebook or Twitter (no email registration) and you can only add resources to your collections through using a bookmarklet (not just by copying and pasting). So those limitations make school use problematic. --Larry Ferlazzo

Free Technology for Teachers: Gmail+1 = Student Email Addresses to Register for Online Services

Free Technology for Teachers: Gmail+1 = Student Email Addresses to Register for Online Services | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

The Gmail+1"hack" isn't a new trick and I can't remember when I first tried it, but it still works and it still provides a solution to a problem that a lot of teachers run into when they want their students to use a new web tool.

Perhaps one of the most challenging conversations to have in libraries and learning communities as we move towards 2013 is the arrival of RDA.  Yes, here is a new acronym that needs to be embedded in our thinking. 2013 will be a year of living dangerously when RDA arrives. Don’t know about RDA yet?  Then it’s time to get excited, and up-to-date!
